Postdoctoral Fellowship in
Climate Change, Sustainability, and Planetary Health

The University of Southern California is seeking postdoctoral fellows in a new interdisciplinary program in Climate Change, Sustainability, and Planetary Health. The aim is to develop urgently needed research on health and equity consequences and opportunities in the response to the climate crisis. The program focuses on Los Angeles as a model city for developing climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions that will have equity and health co-benefits and can be scaled up to Southern California and to other large metropolises. California leads the U.S. effort to reduce greenhouse gas consumption, and the mayor’s Green New Deal for Los Angeles is in the vanguard of this effort. Los Angeles is one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. and has large health and environmental disparities, including urban features such as tree canopy and transportation access, that are relevant to climate change and climate equity. Applicants are encouraged to apply from backgrounds in epidemiology and biostatistics, risk assessment, transportation and urban planning, economics, sociology, health services, exposure assessment; and from environmental health, spatial, nutrition, data or system sciences.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in
Environmental Epidemiology

The Department of Population and Public Health Sciences at the USC Keck School of Medicine (KSOM) is seeking a motivated postdoctoral scholar in environmental epidemiology to join a multidisciplinary team of researchers investigating environmental risk factors for respiratory disease and mortality. Climate change-related exposures is an active area of research for the group. Examples of ongoing research projects include quantifying health impacts of temperature and air pollution co-exposure in the context of climate change, assessing differential heat/pollution effects across communities with varying vulnerabilities, and using causal inference methods to estimate health effects of hypothetical policy interventions. The postdoctoral scholar will participate in scientific activities including all aspects of study design, analysis, manuscript preparation, and development of research proposals.
